Subject[29/39] x86/ptrace: make genregs[32]_get/set more robust
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

commit 04a1e62c2cec820501f93526ad1e46073b802dc4 upstream.

The loop condition is fragile: we compare an unsigned value to zero, and
then decrement it by something larger than one in the loop. All the
callers should be passing in appropriately aligned buffer lengths, but
it's better to just not rely on it, and have some appropriate defensive
loop limits.
